Sawyers Bay Shacks are a modern interpretation of the iconic Tassie beach shack...simple but stylish accommodation located right on the Flinders Island beachfront surrounded by acres of farmland. Energy efficient with solar and wood fire heating, large open plan living area with decks on three sides and views across Bass Strait to Mt Strzlecki and the outer islands. The big shack is the perfect getaway for a family while the small shack (see separate listing) is great for a romantic getaway for two or a smaller family.

We are located about 10 minutes drive from the airport and 15 minutes from the main town, Whitemark. So while the shacks are isolated on rural land on a safe calm water beach with no public access you are close enough to get the newspapers each day or go out for a meal. Being centrally located on the idyllic West coast we are 40 minutes drive from anywhere on the island.

There are just two shacks on the property (well separated) and there are no onsite managers so you can enjoy your holiday in absolute solitude.

The shacks have a well fitted out kitchen, dishwasher, ipod dock and double sided fireplace on to the deck. All linen and towels are provided. To assist you to totally unwind we have chosen not to have televisions in the shacks (a bit of a shock for urban kids but you will find they discover the outdoors can be much more entertaining!). We have plenty of board games and a small library of books including various reference books on walking tours, Tasmanian aboriginal history, early explorers and flora and fauna. Please let us know if you have any particular interests.

The beachfront in front of the shacks is what makes this place so special - magnificent granite boulders with sandy beaches in between. The Age newspaper recently nominated Sawyers Bay as Australia's top secret beach.

Please contact us directly if you would also like to book our 8 seater VW van which we have ready for you at the airport when you arrive.
